Hello, I’m Edward Vreca. Welcome to No need for postcards!
It goes without saying that you probably want to know more about myself and my blog, so let me tell you everything you need to know.
Who am I?
I am a born and bred Londoner, from south of the river, who is a proud mix of Hungarian and Filipino, from my father and mother’s side respectively. Creativity has always been at the heart of my passions. This started at a young age with a love for animation. This developed into a larger appreciation of art and design ultimately leading to me graduating with a degree in Graphic Information Design from the University of Westminster (a very long time ago).
Although unfortunately, I did not manage to build a career in this industry, (because sometimes the real world sucks!) I learnt skills I can use anytime I wish. I have since gone back to higher education but in a work capacity, building a career where I can play a part in giving new students the same wonderful experiences I had when I was at university.
Now at an older and wiser age (I like to think), I am going back full circle to my creative instincts. I look for imaginative personal projects, with writing being at the centre of it all.
I consider myself to be a writer, amateur astronomer, blogger and someone who is continually willing to learn. My inspirations are my late father, my mother and my close friends who always put up with me rambling on about things I have learnt and my ideas.
No need for postcards
There is a need for postcards in the world most definitely. I love sending and receiving them. When I was thinking of a blog name I happened to look at a postcard on my side table and I had a lightbulb moment. Reading a postcard is lovely however if someone read my blog there would be no need to read a postcard. And so no need for postcards became the name of my blog.
Why blog about lifestyle and travel?
Lifestyle and travel encompass a lot of my hobbies and interests. Before I started blogging I had plenty of things to say about life, people, experiences, places I visit and photos. Blogging was the perfect avenue to show my creativity and I already had subject matter to write about. Lifestyle and travel were obvious subjects to write about. I enjoy writing about the weird and wonderful world we live in and expressing it in my own unique way. I have written about food, astronomy and a 100-day project on the blog too but I have taken the decision to narrow down what it is I want to write about and what my audience wants to read.
My blog purpose
“No need for postcards is a creative space to express my opinion on the new experiences I discover”.
Hope you enjoy reading my blog. No need for postcards with your opinions, use the comments section at the end of each post.
P.S. Postcards are awesome.
